Hi – I’m Sue, and I’m a graphic recording artist! My company – GOT IT! Learning Designs – simplifies learning and speaks to the visual learner. Building on two decades of corporate experience in learning and development, I am thriving in my third year of business, serving a diverse array of clients who value visual learning and interactive training.
For example, imagine being in a training course or workshop. You hear the instructor, interact with your peers, view the PowerPoint presentation, and are part of the creation as the graphic recorder takes notes for you in huge, colorful images and text as you are learning! After training, your takeaway is a graphic map – a summary of the course. What a great content retention tool!
To help your business thrive, I provide graphic record training, complex concepts, strategy sessions, keynote presentations and any other gathering where there are a collection of thoughts and ideas you’d like to SEE. One of my greatest delights is to take a concept from a subject matter expert that’s kind of complex, and draw it out so anyone else can look at it and say, “Oh yeah! I got it!” (Yep, that’s the name of our company too.)
We are masters at designing interactive and effective training courses as well. When I design a training course or workshop, I’m always imagining myself as a participant. If I’m not learning and having a good time, I don’t consider it good design.
I am active in my profession. I was chapter President of the Northern Rockies Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development (now Association for Talent Development). I am currently an active board member of the Denver Rocky Mountain Chapter of ATD. I am an active member of the International Forum for Visual Practitioners (IFVP) and have attended several conferences with my international colleagues.
Personally. I am a native New Yorker who moved to Colorado a generation ago. I love the outdoors. I am a road cyclist and have climbed, at last count, 15 mountain passes. I enjoy hiking, snow shoeing, and drawing in plein air.
I would love to collaborate with you when you’d like to create some dynamic training. I’m a trained listener and I’m here to meet your business needs with some really cool tools!
